Trip Planner: Europe / Germany / Bavaria / Franconia / Lower Franconia / Wurzburg / Schloss Veitshöchheim
Marvel at refined Baroque facades and tour elegant period rooms at Schloss Veitshöchheim, a stately mansion on the right bank of the Main River. Completed in 1682, this summer palace of the prince-bishops of Wurzburg was enlarged in 1753 by the famous German military architect Balthasar Neumann. The elaborate interior with lacquered wooden floors will take you back to post-Napoleonic Europe. Take a stroll in the Rococo garden with many ponds and waterworks, and over 200 sandstone sculptures of deities, animals, and allegorical figures.
